Before President-elect Donald Trump won the election and before the left began peddling the notion that the Russians hacked the election in Trump’s favor, President Barack Obama had a few words to say about rigged elections, and they’re not something you’ll find the mainstream media reporting anytime soon.
Speaking at a news conference in October, the president reacted negatively when he was asked about the possibility of a rigged presidential election. He suggested that such thinking undermined the country’s democratic traditions, and then went on to say that anyone, namely Trump, who suggested such a thing wasn’t fit for the White House.
“If you start whining before the game’s even over, if whenever things are going badly for you and you lose, you start blaming somebody else, then you don’t have what it takes to be in this job because there are a lot of times when things don’t go our way or my way,” Obama said.
“There is no evidence that that has happened in the past or that there are instances in which that will happen this time. And so I’d invite Mr. Trump to stop whining and go try to make his case to get votes,” he continued.
Obama added there was “no serious” person who would even go as far as to suggest it was possible to rig American elections.
Yes, he actually said all of that.

To hear Obama say this in light of how the left is attempting to claim that the Russians hacked the election after their efforts for a recount failed is unbelievable.
Obama was attempting to criticize Trump when he made these statements, but his remarks have returned to haunt the left and embarrass them, and for that reason you won’t see the mainstream media showing what the president had to say about rigged elections.
